Statistics* show most of goals scored in the 2015 NHL season were from an area 10-20 feet away from the net. This distance can be roughly assumed for most hockey levels. Many factors come into play with this distance, but two main factors involved are the shooters shot speed can overcome the reaction time of the goalie and the area of open net is rather large from this distance. Thus, to get your biggest bang from your shooting training time, train from the 10-20 feet range. Also from this study, it shows wrist shots are the most effective shot for scoring in this range.
So work your wrist, snap, and back hand shots from a distance of 10-20 feet range, with the emphasis on the wrist shot to maximize your scoring chances. See below detained chart from the 2015 NHL study.
